H3 House, Athens, Greece
Design: 314 Architecture Studio

Located on a plot of 7000m2 the total area of the house is 1000m2. The house was designed to give a sense of balance of the water element and the owners love for yachts, which after all was the inspiration for this project. The contact of the house and the artificial ponds that surround it, create a cooling sensation.

The project M2 at Bozen-Moritzing is a Klimahouse A which hosts two accommodations on separate floors. Because of his punctuated facade in the north and the east it seems closed to the access road. The plastered basement serves as pedestal for the smaller upper floor, which is covered by cladding sheets. To the garden - towards the south and the west – the house opens because of a generous glass façade.

The architects describe this design thus: "although the principal dreamt for years of a swimming pool in his small garden, he chose to renovate his 17th century gentleman’s house first. While the contractors were about to start the works, the uninhabited school building, adjoining his garden, was offered for sale. The principal did not hesitate, works were stopped and the school building was bought. After many analyses and intense discussions it was decided to realise the swimming pool project first".

Copenhagen Harbour Architecture, Denmark - article by Rebecca Breun for e-architect
"Over the last decade the harbour and ports around Copenhagen have been vacated, and the city has launched an impressive attempt not only to link the newly developed areas on the island of Amager, situated opposite Copenhagen proper, to the old city centre, but also to animate the waterfront on both sides...Until recently only two bridges linked the two city parts together, and the waterfront itself was often not open to the public. Now it is possible to walk, bicycle or roller-skate along most of the front with two additional bridges linking new areas together while making sure you don’t have to walk back on yourself."

What you need to know about safety and diamond blades
Home repairs or construction sites can be dangerous places. Do you know that a person is killed every four days and many more are injured because of not taking seriously basic safety measures? Also, diamond saw blades can be a real threat if you don’t care about reading instructions manuals.
Don’t let your work go to waste and follow some basic safety rules.
First: Legal obligations Ask you employer about anything you don’t consider irrelevant while he does. The boss is in charge of providing legal care to all employees. Specially when working with blades or any other sharp construction equipment. As an employee, you have a legal duty under the Health and Safety at Work Act to take care of all of your employees and, of course, yourself.
